Students in the surf and environmental class at Newport Harbor High School will try to persuade the city of Newport Beach to crack down on littering and smoking on beaches. In collaboration with the Earth Resource Foundation, the students are seeking signatures for a petition asking the city to step up enforcement. They hope revenue from citations will help pay for beach cleanups and more educational efforts. The group will gather at 10 a.m. today at the Newport Beach Pier, at Balboa Boulevard and 21st Street.

Usually during a graduation ceremony, all eyes and cameras are pointed to the main stage in hopes of getting a glimpse of graduates. In our case, we wait for a graduate to whoop it up in order to get the shot. However, the best shot often comes from turning 180 degrees and watching the crowd as they cheer on and support the graduates. This was the case at the Newport Harbor High School graduation Thursday, as photographer Don Leach found this moment in which great-aunt Doris Dickey, left, and grandmother Ruth Senour, right, hold a banner in honor of their graduate, Robin Senour.
